Sure, although off the top of my head I can't see a faster way to delete
the temporary window than "C-x o C-x 0" (granted, that's not the most
awkward sequence ever).

(Assuming the user has other windows of interest, so dismissing C-x 1)

Yes, as I described.  As I said, I personally find C-u C-SPC enough for
my purposes, but I can imagine other people liking the proposed
behaviour better.
